[Suggestion] Have armor stands spawn with arms

  1. Would allow you to show off your cool swords and upcoming shields.
  2. I think this would be nice. :)
  3. I was literally thinking of this.

    This needs to be added, so my head collection can pose with awesome items. :D
  4. So you can put items in their hands without commands? If so, I think this would be a good addition.

  5. Some people use armour stands as a way to make it look like people are standing there (Guards etc...) so this would allow for more realistic looking "people".

  7. I was just thinking about this 2 days ago. What I was thinking back then was something like /armtoggle on/off to toggle the arms on and off.

    EDIT: I was thinking about this and I thought of a way it could be done... I don't know java or true coding so just what was in my head...

    Places armorstand "checks if /armtoggle = true, [/armtoggle does = true, saves rotation, position etc. Summons armor stand with arms(/summon armorstand ~ ~ ~ {ShowArms:1}) in same spot rotation and anything else] [/armtoggle = false, nothing different than normal happens]"

    That idea might cause some lag, but it "should" work
  8. I wouldn't rule out the option of any "Aikar magic" to take place every once in a while. Don't forget that EMC has actually fixed Minecraft bugs which are still there in the original game. And what to think about the compass update? That's also a feature which is unavailable in Minecraft yet exists on EMC :)

    Now, I'm not claiming that this is possible; merely saying that I've seen Aikar do "weird" things before ;)

  9. Why not? Couldn't the armor stands be replaced by ones with arms once placed?

  12. Actually, an armor stand is an entity, not a block. Plus you can summon armor stands with the /summon command to have arms, have parts rotate, etc.
  13. Would you pay tokens for this?

  14. Similar to what is stated about, it is in the game and you can spawn it in, I don't see where to problem is.
    No. It would just override normal armor stands.

  16. A quick search on "armor stand" doesn't show much.

    The only real staff feedback is this:


    and that was around 6 months ago, I believe.

    Never denied.

  17. We've discussed it, with the way the data is stored and the process of SS having to currently type a command to add them, it's likely not easy. We'll revisit after 1.9 is out and stable.
  18. Going to bump this for future notice.
  19. Donno if i posted already but +1
